Rectal Cancer overview

Rectal cancer affects the lower part of the colon, which connects the large bowel to the anus. The risk factors for developing rectal cancer are increasing age, smoking, family history of colon or rectal cancer, high-fat diet and/or a diet mostly from animal sources, and personal or family history of polyps or colorectal cancer. Rectal cancer commonly spreads to organs such as the liver and the lungs. The common signs and symptoms of rectal cancer include a change in bowel habits, diarrhea, constipation, or feeling that the bowel does not empty completely; blood, either bright red or very dark in the stool; stools that are narrower than usual; general abdominal discomfort such as frequent gas pains, bloating, fullness or cramps; weight loss with no known reason; constant tiredness; and vomiting. Rectal cancer treatment includes surgery, radiation therapy or chemotherapy, or a combination of these approaches.
